He actually was up from that was up from that for a while probably from his couple of meals a little while back but his poop brought it back down

Sounds like he's doing very well. It would be good if he'd stop scaring his daddy. :)

I know right! What do you make of him not drinking? He's gotta be thirsty right? His urate was quite hard when he pooped, I'm guessing it me be part of why there was a bit of pink, maybe it hurt coming out :(

Just offer it as much as you can. He should drink if he gets thirsty enough. If you've given him hornworms that will hydrate him as well.

I haven't for a little while now. Didn't want to spoil him and then he won't eat roaches

If he's lost 13 grams that's not a problem at all. They can lose more that that with a large poo. He's prob. just being a bit fussy and also just taking his time getting his appetite back. It usually takes them a little while actually, not all or even not a majority are voracious at first.

Actually, I've been meaning to post. HE'S BEEN SOOO ACTIVE! It's great! It was so cute today, I came home for lunch, and I know he's not been eating, so before I got coppers roaches ready, I just went to peek and say hi to RJ real quick. He was in the corner. He saw me see him, and when I was done feeding copper, RJ was out and at the glass of his enclosure. As if to say hi :) But the reason for "wanting to post" is that I don't get why he's still not eating. All week, no roaches. Especially with how active he's been. He has been taking water several times though. Very happy about that! I gave him about 6 butter worms yesterday to get some calciumin in him, He scarfed those. So just being picky? I plan to weigh him and give him some horn worms tomorrow. Hope there's not too much a difference from last weigh.

That's good to hear ! And yes he's being picky and holding out for worms, but it's fine that he could get some calcium in him. :) After a little while just hold off + only offer roaches + greens.

Well he's not eating greens either. Just gave him some water, he took some water but that's it. He wouldn't take roaches, or a horn worm. He only took 2 butter worms, wouldn't take a third. Again he's running ALL over his enclosure, and up against the glass. If I take him out (like in another room) he seems fine. But if he's out near his enclosure, he tries to jump back in. AND HE'S 573 NOW :( maybe in wrong but I feel like his behavior is strange.

This is normal behaviour in the springtime. Young breeding size dragons have the instinct to find a mate and that is what they are more interested in than eating. It's very common + normal.

Does the fact that I'm almost certain he had a sperm plug (ummm maybe a couple weeks ago?) recently reinforce the idea that he may be looking to mate?

Oh, and he's currently obsessed with jumping, even towards places with nothing to land on. Like walls of his enclose. Oh RJ :) I wish I could send a video :)
